Elements of Floral Design: Ribbon

I'm actually quite enjoying my Floral Design class this semester, and wanted to share these helpful notes!  

Obviously there are many more sizes and types of ribbon and textiles used in the floral industry, but these are the ones we'll be using most often this semester.  In our class ribbon is often used for curling & decoration, wrapping corsages or bouquets, tying around plant pots and in funeral arrangements.  Some common types of ornamental ribbons are picot, grosgrain and moiré.  I also got confused by the florists' numbering system, so I found a handy chart that I've included below!

The net and tulle at the bottom makes me dream of tutus and the roses I received after a childhood ballet performance :)
